Thumbs up AntsCanada YouTube Channel

Does anyone else watch this channel? The host is Mikey Bustos and he sells formicariums (ant keeping) supplies as a side business to his music / comedy career. His YouTube channel is largely based on ants but he started building and maintaining paludariums, vivariums, and terrariums to house his ant colonies in like his ever-growing fire ant colony.

I saw one of his clips the other day and was pretty entertained and educated.

I've seen a few of his ant colony videos. He does an excellent job of story telling and narrating, very entertaining. And his ant colonies are unbelievably crazy! I would of never thought I'd find a home raised ant colony video entertaining, but his sure are,

When I read about ants canada I though "Huh Mike Bustos, like the canadian idol guy that makes filipino parody songs" must be a coincidence.
I am surprised its the same guy, I had no idea he was so into exotic animal husbandry. The channel is very informative and he seems to really know his stuff about ants.

Thanks for introducing this to me!

I've been watching his channel for about a year now, it's pretty cool

On that note, I also thoroughly enjoy SerpaDesign and Emzotic

I love his tanks and his ants, but his narration annoys me a little. I'm not a huge fan of the overly dramatic
